idea was warmly seconded, resolutions were passed highly complimentary to Crawford, and subscriptions begun. This testimonial of artists to an artist was, he said, more than empty compliment. In the speaker's opinion, Crawford's Indian surpassed in bold originality all other works of the kind. Unfortunately, the committee of artists could not find a place to be given them by the present dynasty that would in any manner be suitable to the work. The statues on exhibition are the Indian lamenting the downfall of his race; the Hunter Boy, Adam and Eve, the Boy playing marbles, and the Peri, represented in Moore's poem as waiting at the gates of Paradise. The paper of the evening was "The Surprise and Capture of Pound ridge, Westchester county, on the second of July, 1779, by Lieutenant Colonel Tarleton, with a biographical sketch of that officer," by John M. McDonald, Esq., of Flushing. It was read by the Librarian, Mr. Moore, and frequently applauded.--N. Y. Tribune, Oct. 3d.

ply freeze. Some nights ago half the men could not sleep at all. Having to put blankets under them to keep them off the damp ground, they have nothing scarcely to cover with. --They have no straw even. This is sad to think of, but much sadder, I tell you, to witness. There is very bad management somewhere. The "sick list" already is telling a tale. The roads here, contrary to my expectations, are getting very bad, and transportation difficult. Orders were issued from Gen. Magruder on 3d October to build huts, but the first pole has not been cut. I witnessed a sad spectacle on Thursday last. The picket, where I was stationed, was informed that a funeral procession would pass, and we were instructed to permit it.--About dusk we were surprised, and grieved to see a two-wheeled vehicle, and upon it a plain pine coffin, covered with black, advancing up the road. Upon the coffin was mounted the son of the deceased woman as driver, and behind followed a single mourner, who turned
nd hoisted the jack for a pilot; after which two pilots came off in a boat.--Coming close along side, the Captain hailed them, and told them to come on board quick; that there was a cruiser off shore, and he must get in that night. After this the pilots came on board, and, seeing the guns and men on deck, exclaimed, "We are on a United States man-of-war." After expressing a willingness to support the United States, they took the oath of allegiance and were rated ordinary seamen. On the 3d of October captured the English schooner Beverly, from Halifax, off Wilmington, N. C., loaded, with dry goods, fish, &c. On the 19th of October, captured the English brig Ariel, from Liverpool, off Wilmington, N. C., loaded with salt, &c. Arrived at Hampton Roads October 30, for officers and men. The Gemsbok is armed with four sixty eight pounders and two thirty-two pounders, with a complement of one hundred men. Col. Mulligan. The Chicago (Nov. 6) correspondent of the New York Times, of t
weather — continued Depredations from the Yankees — hardships endured. [correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Camp at Greenbrier River, November 15, 1861. The mercury stands here at a figure considerably below what it does in your city; for even now, while no doubt you are enjoying pleasant weather, a most tremendous snow storm is going on, and if it continues until morning at this rate, we shall have snow 12 inches deep. We have had no general engagement since the 3d of October; but the enemy, who are reported at from three to four thousand strong on the top of Cheat Mountain, continue to send down parties of from 500 to 700 strong to fire on our pickets and to plunder the country. They sent down such a party on the night of the 2d, to burn a house occupied by our "grand guard," but our picket fired into them, killing eight and taking one of them prisoner, and they ran precipitately back.--Small parties come down every day or so, and "take it out" in firing at
your right, where there were no entrenchments, and on your left, where we had but partly constructed earth-works, you met him and in a hand-to-hand conflict, after a struggle of nearly seven (7) hours, drove him from the field. Not once did you falter.--Cheered on and animated by the heroic example of your officers, you drove the enemy from the summit of Alleghany back to his fastnesses in Cheat Mountain. and Virginians, you have met the same enemy you met at Green brier river on the 3d of October, and with an equally glorious result. Whilst we have abundant cause to thank God for this victory, let us not forget the gallant dead who fell by our sides, and whom we buried on Alleghany. Remember their gallantry, and emulate their example. [Signed]Edward Johnson, [Official.] Col. Commanding. Edward Willis, Lt. O. S. A. and Actg. Asst. Adjt. Genl. The following is an extract from a letter received by Mr. Branson, of the Senate, on yesterday, dated "Top of Alleghany

From these dispatches we reasonably conclude that our arms have again been victorious, and that a great victory over the forces of Rosecrans has been achieved: Headquarters Cavalry,Davis Bridge, 3d, via Holly Springs,October 5th, 1862.

Hdq'rs forces near Corinth, October 3--5:30 P. M. To Col. Wirt Adams: Have driven the enemy from every position. We are within three quarters of a mile of Corinth. Enemy huddled together about town, some on the extreme left, trying to hold possession. So far, all glorious, and our men behaved nobly. Loss, I am afraid, is heavy. It is nearly night. Lovell's and Price's troops have our thanks. (Signed) Earl. Van-Dorn, Major General Commanding.
